I enjoyed this read. It centers on Jamie, a woman in her mid-30s who is suffering anxiety and memory loss from an event that happened at camp when she was a teenager, and resulted in her twin brother, Trevor, going missing. She heads back to her hometown because her mother had an accident, and ends up dealing with alot of things there, including increased anxiety about what may and may not have happened 18 years ago, reconnecting with friends and acquaintances from her childhood, and trying to ...more

Jamie has made a life for herself after her twin brother disappeared - but no matter how many therapy sessions she goes to she cannot remember what happened that summer at camp. She tends to bury herself in the bottle.
Her mother is injured and she returns home to care for her. She must deal with the memories and incidents that keep happening - Who is trying to kill her and her mother? Is it related to what happened that summer at camp?

WOW! This author will be on my list for new reads!

Jaime lives in Arlington Va. She is having flashbacks that she is unsure of - also anxiety attacks. She does see a therapist for this, but seems to be going in circles. She was engaged to a "powerful attorney" (Alex) who cheated on her with her (now former) best friend, Emily. A phone call in the middle of the night forces Jaime to return to Cedar Lake, her once hometown - her mother, Lillian, was in the hospital...

Cedar Lake has some unpleasant

I guess there is a reason it is said that you can't go home again. Maybe it is better to say, maybe you shouldn't go home again. Jamie Kendal has a past...one she cannot remember. One that changed her life, and the lives of those around her...forever. Along with seeing a therapist in an attempt to salvage the memories of that summer night so long ago, the night she lost her twin brother, Trevor, Jamie is also self-medicating with alcohol. She is forced to return home upon learning of her ...more

Jamie has come home to care for her ailing mother. Jamie herself lives a shadow of a life with mental and alcoholic problems. After coming home she is forced to remember the trauma that occurred in her youth, the night her twin brother died. The viewpoints alternated between Jamie and other people as well as in time, Today and the summer of the tragedy. Author does an excellent job building suspense while dropping clues in both timelines. Jamie is a sympathetic character, you can easily ...more

Thank you NetGalley for the ARC of Buried in My Past by Eva MacKenzie that I read and reviewed.
This book was a book by an author I had never read before and it was really enjoyable. It had a lot going on and a number of characters points that you were reading from so you have to be sure to read the chapter titles to see exactly whose point of view you are reading so you don’t get lost but once you get past that the book has a really great story with some interesting twist and turns.

There was a lot going on in this book but I enjoyed it. I feel like the characters could use some further development but it didn't keep me from finishing the book. I would be interested in reading more by this author. I feel it you enjoy a darker mystery/ thriller you'll enjoy this book.
